Friedman BE-100 Brown Eye 100 Head
This is the latest and greatest version of the Friedman Brown Eye 100. We just received a shipment on June 18th, 2018!
The Friedman Brown Eye 100 is a modified, 100 watt, British voiced, two channel amp that tames some of the harshness that is commonly found in British styled amps. The Brown Eye 100 features a fatter and punchy tone with incredible sustain! It's also very responsive to guitar tone and the volume pot making it very dynamic.
This amp features a Clean, Overdrive and Boost Channel with a channel selector switch (CL-BE-HBE). The Clean Channel has a 2 Band EQ Treble and Bass controls with 3 Position Bright Switch. The Overdrive (BE "Brown Eye") Channel has a full 3 Band EQ with Presence, Master Volume and Gain controls, as well as a Voice switch which gives you a subtle increase in bottom end response and gain. Finally, the last stage of the channel selector switch is the Boost (HBE "Hairy Brown Eye") Channel which essentially adds Boost to the Overdrive Channel.
The rear panel features 2 Speaker Outputs with an impedance selector switch that has 4, 8 and 16 Ohm load options, a Transparent Series FX Loop with return level, and Line Out with Level control. The rear panel also features a few more tone shaping switch options. There are three voicing switches including the SAT, FAT, and C45 switch. The SAT switch adds a bit of saturation to your tone, the FAT switch adds a thick bass to the tone, and the C45 Switch scoops the mids giving you more bass and treble response, there is also a slight increase in gain.
